Duo Decibel System

One of our favorite local indie rock acts, Duo Decibel System came together a couple of years ago after singer-guitarist Miss Melvis moved back to Cleveland after a stint in Texas. She mostly played solo shows but had a gig scheduled at the Empire that required her to play with a drummer. Her drummer at the time bailed and she knew John Scully had just left the local band he was in. He played with her, and the two have played together as Duo Decibel System ever since. Last year’s release, Exit Stage Love, features a wide array of musical styles as the two dabble in punk, folk, ambient noise and "sequenced minimalism." The songs are about living in Texas and the subsequent breakup that Melvis endured before coming home. Now, the duo has just announced it will celebrate the release of its new album, Slow Wave, with a release party at Silver Scuro Studio and Gallery. “In dreams and nightmares, Slow Wave is an excursion,” reads the press release announcing the album’s release. “Creepy funk, black melodies, electromagnetic Latin, chilled bombs, modular hissing, dobro surf, elementary particle slides, big-banged trumpet, loved.....and not so loved.” The event will include a live performance, installation by artist Mark Jenks and a photography exhibit. There will even be drinks and appetizers.
